Practice Manager ASSOCIATEs

RANZCO recognises the integral role played by practice managers in assisting fellows to carry out their work to the highest possible standard. The RANZCO membership category of Practice Manager is open to all ophthalmic practice managers in Australia and New Zealand. Membership is tied to the individual, rather than the practice, and members are issued a user name and password so they can access locked resources on the RANZCO website. In some cases, a practice may pay for an individual's membership. The membership, however, still belongs to the individual Practice Manager, even if they leave the practice.

Existing members are encouraged to log in to the website to access the full range of available resources and information. If you have forgotten your password, please contact ranzco@ranzco.edu.


  • Subscription to regular RANZCO correspondence
  • Subscription to hard copies of the RANZCO Eye2Eye seasonal magazine
  • Concession rates to the Annual Practice Mangers' Conference
  • Option of joining the Practice Managers' Committee
  • Access to the Members Area on the RANZCO website - including the NUCLEUS program and the Practice Managers Chat Forum.

The annual (operated around financial year) membership fee is $390 plus $80 joining fee (excluding GST). Application form can be downloaded here (PDF 150KB) (PDF 205.2KB) (PDF 150KB).

About the Practice Managers' Conference

Please make sure you mark your calendars for the Annual Practice Managers' Conference held in conjunction with the RANZCO Annual Scientific Congress on Sunday 18 to 20 November 2018 in Adelaide, Australia.

The Committee is working hard to build an exciting program that will challenge, inspire and invigorate you as you invest time in your own professional development. The Committee also aims to assemble a mix of speakers who will shed light on innovative research topics and issues that shape our field today, with an emphasis on sharing ideas and experiences that are applicable to practice management.
